2. INTRODUCTION 2.1 On Board Diagnostics (OBD)


The OBDII Scan Tool is designed to work on all OBDII compliant vehicles. All 1996 and newer vehicles (cars, light trucks and SUVs) sold in the United States are OBDII compliant. One of the most exciting improvements in the automobile industry was the addition of on-board diagnostics (OBD) on vehicles, or in more basic terms, the computer that activates the vehicles CHECK ENGINE light. OBDI was designed to monitor manu-facturer-specific systems on vehicles builtfrom 1981 to 1995. Then came the develop-ment of OBDII, which is on all 1996 cars and light trucks sold in the U.S. Like its predecessor, OBDII was adopted as part of a government mandate to lower vehicle emissions. But what makes OBDII unique is its universal application for all late model cars and trucks domestic and import. This sophisticated program in the vehicles main computer system is designed to detect failures in a range of systems, and can be accessed through a universal OBDII port, which is usually found under the dashboard. For all OBD systems, if a problem is found, the computer turns on the CHECK ENGINE light to warn the driver, and sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) to identify where the problem occurred. A special diagnostic tool, such as the OBDII Scan Tool, is required to retrieve these codes, which consumers and professionals use as a starting point for repairs. Skype: obd2works

2.2 Vehicles Covered


The OBDII Scan Tool is designed to work on all OBDII compliant vehicles. All 1996 and newer vehicles (cars and light trucks) sold in the United States are OBDII compliant. Federal law requires that all 1996 and newer cars and light trucks sold in the United States must be OBDII compliant; this includes all Domestic, Asian and European vehicles.

Some 1994 and 1995 vehicles are OBDII compliant. To find out if a 1994 or 1995 vehicle is OBDII compliant, check the following: 1.

ww.

The Vehicle Emissions Control Information (VECI) Label. This label is located under the hood or by the radiator of most vehicles. If the vehicle is OBDII compliant, the label will state OBDII Certified.

2.3 Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs)


Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) are meant to guide you to the proper service procedure in the vehicles service manual. DO NOT replace parts based only on DTCs without first consulting the vehicles service manual for proper testing procedures for that particular system, circuit or component. Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) are codes that identify a specific problem area.

ww.

DTCs are alphanumeric codes that are used to identify a problem that is present in any of the systems that are monitored by the on-board computer (PCM). Each trouble code has an assigned message that identifies the circuit, component or system area where the problem was found. OBDII diagnostic trouble codes are made up of five characters: The 1st character is a letter. It identifies the main system where the fault occurred (Body, Chassis, Powertrain, or Network). The 2nd character is a numeric digit. It identifies the type of code(Generic or Manufacturer-Specific). Generic DTCs are codes that are used by all vehicle manufacturers. The standards for generic DTCs, as well as their definitions, are set by the Society of Automotive Engineers(SAE). Manufacturer-Specific DTCs are codes that are controlled by the vehicle manufacturers. The Federal Government does not require vehicle manufacturers to go beyond the standardized generic DTCs in order to comply new OBDII emissions standards. with the Skype: obd2works However, manufacturers are free to expand beyond the standardized Email: obd2works@gmail.com codes to make their systems easier to diagnose.

DTCs and MIL Status When the vehicles on-board computer detects a failure in an emissions-related component or system, the computers internal diagnostic program assigns a diagnostic trouble code(DTC) that points to the system (and subsystem) where the fault was found. The diagnostic program saves the code in the computers memory. It records a Freeze Frame of conditions present when the fault was found, and lights the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL). Some faults require detection for two trips in a row before the MIL is turned on. The Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) is the accepted term used to describe the lamp on the dashboard that lights to warn the driver that an emissions-related fault has been found. Some manufacturers may still call this lamp a Check Engine or Service Engine Soon light.

4.4 Viewing Live Data


The OBDII Scan Tool is a special diagnostic tool that communicates with the vehicle's computer. The Scan Tool lets you view "real-time" Live Data. This information includes values (volts, rpm, temperature, speed etc.) and system status information (open loop, closed loop, fuel system status, etc.) generated by the various vehicle sensors, switches and actuators. In effect the Scan Tool lets you view, in "real time", the same signal values generated by the sensors, actuators, switches and/or vehicle system status information used by the vehicle's computer when calculating and conducting system adjustments and corrections. The real time (Live Data) vehicle operating information (values/status) that the computer supplies to the Scan Tool for each sensor, actuator, switch, etc. is called Parameter Identification (PID) Data.

ww.

o w 2 obd

4.6 I/M Readiness Testing


I/M is an Inspection and Maintenance program legislated by the Government to meet federal clean-air standards. The program requires that a vehicle be taken periodically to an Emissions Station for an "Emissions Test" or "Smog Check, where the emissions-related components and systems are inspected and tested for proper operation. Emissions Tests are generally performed once a year, or once every two years. On OBDII systems, the I/M program is enhanced by requiring vehicles to meet stricter test standards. One of the tests instituted by the Federal Government is called I/M 240. On I/M 240, the vehicle under test is driven under different speeds and load conditions on a dynamometer for 240 seconds, while the vehicle's emissions are measured. Emissions tests vary depending on the geographic or regional area in which the vehicle is registered. If the vehicle is registered in a highly urbanized area, the I/M 240 is probably the type of test required. If the vehicle is registered in a rural area, the stricter dynamometer type test may not be required.

and Emission Standards to ensure that all emissions-related components and systems are continuously or periodically monitored, tested and diagnosed whenever the vehicle is in operation. It also requires vehicle manufacturers to automatically detect and report any problems or faults that may increase the vehicle's emissions to an unacceptable level. The vehicle's emissions control system consists of several components or sub-systems (Oxygen Sensor, Catalytic Converter, EGR, Fuel System, etc.) that aid in reducing vehicle emissions.

To have an efficient Vehicle Emission Control System, all the emissions-related components and systems must work correctly whenever the vehicle is in operation.

ww.

To comply with State and Federal Government regulations, vehicle manufacturers designed a series of special computer programs called "Monitors" that are programmed into the vehicle's computer. Each of these Monitors is specifically designed to run tests and diagnostics on a specific emissions-related component or system (Oxygen Sensor, Catalytic Converter, EGR Valve, Fuel System, etc.) to ensure their proper operation. Currently, there are a maximum of eleven Monitors available for use.

Emissions Inspection and Maintenance (I/M) Readiness Monitor Status Information I/M Readiness Monitor Status shows which of the vehicle's Monitors have run and completed their diagnosis and testing, and which ones have not yet run and completed testing and diagnosis of their designated sections of the vehicle's emissions system. If a Monitor was able to meet all the conditions required to enable it to perform the self-diagnosis and testing of its assigned engine system, it means the monitor "HAS RUN. If a Monitor has not yet met all the conditions required for it to perform the self-diagnosis and testing of its assigned engine system; it means the Monitor "HAS NOT RUN. The Monitor Run/Not Run status does not show whether or not a problem exists in a system. Monitor status only indicates whether a particular Monitor has or has not run and performed the self-diagnosis and testing of its associated system.

ww.

Performing I/M Readiness Quick Check When a vehicle first comes from the factory, all Monitors indicate a HAVE RUN status. This indicates that all Monitors have run and completed their diagnostic testing. The HAVE RUN status remains in the computer's memory, unless the Diagnostic Trouble Codes are erased or the vehicle's computer memory is cleared. The Scan Tool allows you to retrieve Monitor/System Status Information to help you determine if the vehicle is ready for an Emissions Test (Smog Check). In addition to retrieving Diagnostic Skype: obd2works Trouble Codes, the Scan Tool also retrieves Monitor Run/Not Run Email: obd2works@gmail.com status. This information is very important since different areas of

the state/country have different emissions laws and regulations concerning Monitor Run/Not Run status. Before an Emissions Test (Smog Check) can be performed, your vehicle must meet certain rules, requirements and procedures legislated by the Federal and state (country) governments where you live. 1. In most areas, one of the requirements that must be met before a vehicle is allowed to be Emissions Tested (Smog Checked) is that the vehicle does not have any Diagnostic Trouble Codes present (with the exception of PENDING Diagnostic Trouble Codes). 2. In addition to the requirement that no Diagnostic Trouble Codes be present, some areas also require that all the Monitors that a particular vehicle supports indicate a "Has Run" status condition before an Emissions Check may be performed. 3. Other areas may only require that some (but not all) Monitors indicate a "Has Run" status before an Emissions Test (Smog Check) may be performed.

ww.

o w 2 obd

Use the following procedure to determine I/M Readiness Monitor Status: 1. Using retrieved Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) and code definitions as a guide, and following manufacturer's repair procedures, repair the fault or faults as instructed. 2. After the fault or faults have been repaired, connect the Scan Tool to the vehicle's DLC and erase the code or codes from the vehicle's computer memory. 3. After the erase procedure is performed, most of the Monitor icons on the Scan Tools display will be flashing. Leave the Scan Tool connected to the vehicle, and perform a Trip Drive Cycle for each "flashing" Monitor: Misfire, Fuel and Comprehensive Component Monitors run continuously and their icons will always be on solid, even after the erase function is performed. Each DTC is associated with a specific Monitor. Consult the vehicle's service manual to identify the Monitor (or Monitors) associated with the faults that were repaired. Follow the manufacturer's procedures to perform a Trip Drive Cycle for the appropriate Monitors. While observing the Monitor icons on the Scan Tools display, perform a Trip Drive Cycle for the appropriate Monitor or Monitors.

Trying to drive and observe the Scan Tool at the same time is dangerous, and could cause a serious traffic accident. 4. When a Monitor's Trip Drive Cycle is performed properly, the Monitor icon on the Scan Tools display changes from "flashing" to "solid, indicating that the Monitor has run and finished its diagnostic testing. If, after the Monitor has run, the MIL on the vehicle's dash is not lit, and no stored or pending codes associated with that particular Monitor are present in the vehicle's computer, the repair was successful. If, after the Monitor has run, the MIL on the vehicle's dash lights and/or a DTC associated with that Monitor is present in the vehicle's computer, the repair was unsuccessful.
